Why Play?

More than an activity, play is a mindset that encourages curiosity and adaptability.

A culture of play creates a safe environment for creativity and innovation to flourish.

When play is practiced with intention, it can be a profound vehicle for accelerating growth, learning and development.

Research shows that experiential play:

Induces a “flow” state, ideal for creativity and the learning of new skills

Lights up the whole brain and creates new neural path ways that literally make you smarter

Strengthens collaboration, builds creative problem-solving skills, and helps your team to overcome challenges quickly and easily.

Origins of Play on Purpose

Over the years, I had become the person people called when they needed an infusion of meaningful play in their events. After hundreds of these one-on-one consultations, I decided to launch this library of videos as a way of making these impactful exercises available to more people like you!

The Play On Purpose library is the culmination of 20 years of researching, learning, and developing playful methods for engaging groups. I have used these exercises with tens of thousands of people around the world, and I am confident that they can work their magic on any group.

Play on Purpose - Group Session

Each exercise is a precious gem that can be themed and re-interpreted in a million ways to deliver the experience that your group needs right now. I hope you find these tools useful in your practice, and that you continue to experiment with them and make them your own.

Play on!
